arthoniel: (Pride and Prejudice- *uncontrollably exc)

So I just finished watching the Golden Globes. (...Three hours after they finished, because I had to pack. Oh, TiVo. I love you so.)

...I swear, one day, I will be there. It may take a few years, the completion of my education, and a while of artist's poverty, but... I will be there myself. One day. One day soon. Relatively speaking, at least.

Meanwhile, it is 2 AM, and I now lay me down to sleep... to wake up in 7 hours to go back to Brandeis. 10:30 AM bus, why? Anyway... I'm excited to go back to school and see my friends and everything... but damn, am I going to miss New York. It is where I live, and where I belong.

Lastly, today there was karaoke. And it was awesome. And I just wanted to put that out there. That it was awesome, and everyone who was there makes me so many levels of happy inside like I can't even begin to describe.  :D

The Golden Globes. Give it a few years... but I'll be there.
arthoniel: (Baccano!- Deep thoughts by Issac and Mir)

Random musings since my brain is not in a place where I can write out full paragraphs and stuff.

-I love my high school. I love going back to visit. Especially since so many of my friends there are younger than me, and thus, still there. But I'm glad it's over, and that I'm in college now.
-My Disney Pandora channel is giving me less and less actual Disney. First it was all the songs from Disney movies that I liked... and then it became covers of those songs by other people, which wasn't ideal, but wasn't bad... and then it was Glee which I couldn't dislike, but wasn't quite what I was going for... but now, getting an actual Disney song is significantly rarer. And that's not cool. I'm considering deleting the channel and just starting over with it again. Because... I have not had a Disney song for the past, like, seven songs. (I'm listening to it now, if that wasn't already obvious.)
-Someone truly awesome made marshmallows, and gave me a bit of them. They were amazing and Earl Grey flavored and I loved them. The only thing about them that makes me at all sad is that they are gone now, and I no longer have any. But they were still really super cool.  :D
-I recently got an idea for a new stand-up sketch that I think could be really good if I can just refine it some. And by some, I mean a lot. But it's a really good idea, and I really wanna work on it.
-I absolutely adore my HTP friends. Some of us went out to see Julie Taymor's film adaptation of The Tempest, and it was very much made of happy. It's the trippiest Shakespeare that I've ever seen. But oh my god, so good. And then I saw it with some of my favorite people ever, and it just was very much happy tiemz, and I love all of you. (Yay being vague with names and identities on the internet!)  <3
-In fact, in general, I have been getting a lot of love recently. An almost disproportionate amount of love, but... I'm feeling very happy in general with life right about now. I love my friends, especially now that I have friends who respect me and show me their affection, I love the holiday season which helps bring all of this out in all of us, and I love all of you. All of you. You all help make me this kind of happy, and it's just wonderful and... I don't really have words for it in my slightly brain-dead state, but... I'm very happy, and it's you guys who bring me to this level of awesome.  :)
-Whoa. I guess I can do paragraphs a little more than I thought I could.
-Walking will be happening a lot tomorrow as I walk from my house all the way down to the fashion district and back to get holiday presents... and I don't want to pay train fare. But it's good for me! It's good exercise! ...Besides, it also means that if I don't spend all of the money I've allotted for holiday presents, that is ample excuse for me to let myself go to Jamba Juice with the rest of my money and get their limited edition Berried 'n Chocolate flavor smoothie, which is just so good and I love it.
-Equals Three is awesome. It's a web show on YouTube, and... yeah, just YouTube search Equals Three and watch it. It's really funny. And should you care, I can post links to my favorite episodes from it. I mean, I have literally cried from laughing because of it. ...Also, the guy who does it lives in New York, just down the block from a friend of mine, so you just know that it's awesome.
-I've finally seen all of Firefly. slkdfjdslkjfsd IT'S SO GOOD. I really wanna get the DVDs now too... but yes. It's just such a good series. And Nathan Fillion is a beautiful, A+ human being.

...I've gotten to the point where I'm just rambling about the first thing that comes to mind. Also, Go The Distance just came up on my Pandora channel, so I'll stop now.

But yes. TL;DR... I love you all, you guys. You make me very happy. All of you.  <3

arthoniel: (TWEWY- Joshua being sexy)

So, as it turns out, I do remember how to like someone in real life. And that is all I will say on the matter.  :D

I'm getting into Firefly now. I knew it was only a matter of time after I saw how many people around me absolutely adore it, but... it's finally happening. And... sdlfjsldifjsdl OH MY GOD IT'S SO GOOD. Why did Fox cancel it? Oh, right, because they're a collective bitch. But... IT'S SO GOOD.  8D
...And now I totally agree with that XKCD comic, and would pay good money to go see the action film "River Tam Kills Everybody."  XD

Tomorrow I have to finish up a paper on magical thinking. That would be funny if I were kidding. I'm already not doing an extra credit assignment for Spanish because I tried to write it, but... ugh. I'm not... I'm getting sleep tonight. I just am.

OH OH OH I DIDN'T TELL YOU GUYS. I got a keyboard for Chanukka recently!! Like, a piano keyboard! She is beautiful and I love her and I'm still not sure what to name her, but... sldfkjsdlkj I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER SO MUCH. (Yes, my keyboard is a she.)

Hot tea is my savior. Especially as I think I'm getting sick. And sore throats are literally the bane of my existance. Anything else I can deal with. Sore throats... gah, I hate them. A lot.

Finally, I don't care how much I've raved about it before... but slkfjdslf THE ROMEO X JULIET SOUNDTRACK IS SO, SO GORGEOUS.  8D
...Just sayin'.
arthoniel: (Default)
Still Gleeking out over Glee. Also still haven't seen more than the first four episodes. But I thought it was relevant to mention, as it is my subject header.

I am so productive tonight!! I finished my NaNoWriMo and won the contest, I did work on my Spanish oral exam (although I need to study more and make notecards and stuff... but that'll probably happen more in the morning than now) and I sent out the Fullmusical Alchemist callbacks. I am so awesome.

Tomorrow will involve work on me finally really editing the FMuA script, and working on my Juliet app for Paradisa. Oh, and Chanukka.

As the holidays begin tomorrow, by the way... happy holidays, everyone!!  8D
arthoniel: (Default)

In my new (and final) UWS essay, I literally begin the essay with a Spider-Man quote. I then continue on to talk about Star Trek. Finally, I write the essay itself about Stephen Colbert and how awesome he is. This is actually kinda cool.

Macaroni and cheese is surprisingly comfortable to sleep on.

Chocolate covered cookie dough bites are delicious.

I can't wait to spend the holiday season in New York~
...That being said, I wish it were warm. I miss warm. I want warm.

I don't have my first class tomorrow. So instead, I can sleep in. Ish. Still gotta get up at 10 to work on my paper/NaNoWriMo. But I can sleep in. Ish.

I got a friend hooked on Least I Could Do, and am now proud of myself.

I always find myself liking guys who are inaccessable. And the best part is? When a guy who is even remotely acceptable likes me, it scares the living crap out of me. Even if I kinda had a thing for him a little bit a little while back, that's almost entirely gone now, but... it could just be me going crazy from lack of sleep because LOL NANOWRIMO, but... what the hell. Just, what the hell. In conclusion: Guys are confusing, and BLAH RELATIONSHIP ISSUES WHY DO THEY EXIST WHEN THEY'RE NOT EVEN A THING?? (...It's 2:30 in the morning, shut up about my awful writing skills because IT'S 2:30 IN THE MORNING.) In my other conclusion: I only ever like guys who don't/can't like me back, and it sucks. Clearly, I are masochist. Hear me roar.

I actually used the phrase "See... Adam was secretly a ninja" in my novel. No, I'm not kidding. THAT IS HOW BAD MY STORY IS. God, I hate my NaNo this year. That being said... I'm at 43,380 words. I may yet actually do this. It will be one of the most extraordinary things that has ever happened to me if I can manage to pull this off.  XD

Right. My UWS paper. I got this. I should at least finish the intro and an outline...  ;;

arthoniel: (Heroes- Gonna hafta choke a bitch)





...Then stops and slowly and calmly puts it back up and sets everything up so it's nice and stable again. That's a productive use of my time that isn't spent writing this damn thing, right?*
arthoniel: (Death Note- Can I have your autograph?)

Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.
Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot.
Day Seven: Four turn offs.
Day Eight: Three turn ons.
Day Nine: Two smileys that describe your life right now.
Day Ten: One confession.

I wonder how many people will actually read this? )...That didn't work as well as I had hoped for getting the reminder that I am exactly one hour and seven minutes too late for signing up for some of the classes I really want to take next semester, and I won't be able to add them until the next semester starts. In other words, I'm a moron. That, and I have to do a thing for my UWS that I really don't want to do, and that's in addition to my paper that I'm currently writing. So. Um. Yeah. That wasn't entirely helpful.  -_-;;
arthoniel: (TWEWY- Joshua being sexy)

8-10 PAGE SATIRE PAPER: not-quite-as-large-a-majority-but-still-a-majority DONE!

I know, I'm shocked too. It's all crap, all of it. But I still have it, and that's what's important.

I'm not 100% done with everything though, so to those of you who have them... keep those inspirational GIFs coming!! No, seriously, I love them all. They're all made of utter win.

So I was going to the restroom earlier. It was about 1 in the morning. And outside the bathroom door, I see a girl who lives on my floor. She was blowing bubbles and playing with them- trying to catch them and stuff. I love college.

Finally, this is still my favorite piece of logic in the world: Haruhi Suzumiya is a French aristocrat, therefore, I like pomegranites.  :D

I will leave you all now with a wonderful quote from Axis Powers: Hetalia (dubbed), because I can. And because it's awesome.
America (to Britain, concerning his new fighter jet plane bomber thing): "Thanks! It was actually created to help me beat the holy hell out of you, so I'm glad you dig its style!"
America's servant/advisor/guy: "'Scuse me, but was that information supposed to stay a secret?"
America: "It sure was!"

^Pretty much sums up my country.
arthoniel: (A:TLA- Imminent Death Alert)








Break out the sugar and the chocolate chip cookies, boys, 'cause we're in for the long haul tonight!

...Seriously though, if anyone has any relevant, funny, awesome, or encouraging GIFs, this would be an excellent time to bring them out. Help me? Please??

I was in theater class yesterday, and we were all divided up into groups and had/have to do this presentation on a modern play. My group is doing Miss Julie, but that's irrelevant. Yesterday, one of the groups that presented was assigned the play Our Town, by Thorton Wilder. And part of the presentation includes doing a scene from the play, and, naturally, they choose the one where Emily goes to re-live her 12th birthday and... dammit, the actors weren't even that amazing, and I still nearly cried. The writing in that is just so amazing... it's just one of those pieces that just gets it. And it's exceptional and... and just. sjdlfkjsdlfkjsd. It's so good.

On a completely unrelated note, Haruhi Suzumiya is a French aristocrat, therefore, I like pomegranites. The logic is sound. No, really. It are fact. I know because of my learnings.

Lastly... you. Yes, you. You with the face. You need to visit these websites.
It won't take much of your time, and they are SO worth it. Just. Trust me on this one? I promise that none of them have viruses or anything!

ETA: Ahaha, I lied. Paradisa. It's taking over my life, what the hell. Someone convince me to not app Data. Someone please do it. I don't have enough time for the awesome as it is, and it's not like he even has any castmates there but I've been on a kind of Star Trek kick recently, and Data is my favorite by a lot and it would be so much fun to have Data, the child of science, deal with a magical castle but I DON'T HAVE THE TIME SOMEONE HELP. Also, Paradisa gets its own tag now. For sheer awesome.
arthoniel: (Star Trek- Bondage Fun Time)
I could have spent this entry talking about New York Comic Con and New York Anime Fest, and what I thought about it. I was there this weekend, after all, and I do want to write something about it.

I could have spent this entry arguing about how annoying my classes are, and how studying is irritating.

I could have spent this entry discussing how awesome the people in HTP (my school's Shakespearean group that I'm in- it stands for Hold Thy Peace, and it's super special awesome) are, and how much I am really and truly beginning to love them.

I could even have spent this entry going off about how I have really, fully, finally, completely, and truly begun to fall for Neil Patrick Harris, particularly in How I Met Your Mother, which I am also seriously getting into.

But no. I can't do any of that. Because my brain has been completely taken over... by this:

Can't type due to laughter either? Don't worry, there's no need to. I completely understand. You're welcome.
arthoniel: (Heroes- Unnecissary)

...You know, you would think that preparing for a class project where I get to be a lawyer would be more fun. But no. It's really not. After hours of working on my 20 minute (20 minute!!) opening statement, I now get to move on to my 3-4 page paper, 1.5 spaced, 12 pt font. *sighs* The worst part is that it's really my own fault. I've had this for ages. I just... didn't work on it. It really is my own fault. I hate it when that happens.

On the bright side... [ profile] acedressing  [ profile] acedressing  [ profile] acedressing . Why yes, that IS a new Ace Attorney Dressing Room, much like the one I got my start RPing in~!

And finally, although they do not give us voices, they DO give us a date for... 

arthoniel: (Random- Touched by an angel. Of music. A)
...Wow. I have once again done that thing where I've kept up with my flist and everything, and in the process, completely failed to mention anything about my own life. Oops. So, uh... yay bullet point form again?

-I won't be here tomorrow. And not really on Friday either- I'll be on my SEN10R trip to Philadelphia!! (Which really means Six Flags tomorrow~  XD) Seriously though, it'll be awesome, and I'm really excited. I don't know if Philly can handle us though!!

-You guys know how I do comedy? My last show with my Kids 'n Comedy group is this Sunday. It's so... nostalgic. I'm gonna rock it though. Like, it's the first show I'm really going to plan everything out for, start to finish.

-Sunday is Hetalia karaoke. I would say who I'm cosplaying, but it's a surprise, and I'm not gonna ruin it for those on my flist who are going. But... it'll be awesome.  8D

-AnimeNEXT is coming up, and I'm SERIOUSLY excited. Greg Ayres AND LittleKuriboh, all at one con? All I'd need now is for J. Michael Tatum to turn up there too, and my life would be absolutely complete.

-Fff, applying for jobs at my local movie theaters. Because I need a job. Fun times!

-Senior prom is coming up soon too... I have to get my dress taken in and fixed (I bought it slightly damaged, but WAY cheap. Who else here thinks that $31.99 was a good price for a floor length, fancy prom dress?  ^_^) but I'm still really excited. It's also gonna be so awesome!

-I still can't believe that I'm going to Brandeis University come this fall. I mean, I cancelled my enrollment at Trinity and everything, but it's still so... just... unreal to me.
-(On a related note, Bostonians on my flist! What are some good cons in and around Boston? I was at Anime Boston this year, as you know, but... what are the others? Because I'm gonna BE there for four years, and I can't just try to ferry myself to and from New York for my cons. That's just not gonna work.)

...I feel like I had more to say here, but I don't remember it, and besides, it's 11:30 at night, and I still have to finish packing, shower, sleep, and get up at 6:00 AM tomorrow. So uh... I won't REALLY be here, but if anything super important comes up, I have my phone with it's lovely internet access, albiet for a price. But otherwise... see you all on Friday~!
arthoniel: (Death Note- Will Strip for Cake)
Yeah. So I'm pretty sure I'm the only person in my class who really actually likes their schedule. So uh... sucks to be my classmates, I guess. Because I'm set off pretty awesomely~

Under a cut for those of you who don't really care... I'm considerate to you too!! )

...Yeah, I'm pretty pleased.

Also, I'm getting one of my teachers into Death Note. This makes me so happy like I don't even have the words.  XD
arthoniel: (Heroes- Alejandro says bullshit)

Fuck you too, Monday mornings. Especially Monday mornings back from break...

Romeo x Juliet is really pretty good. To be fair, I'm slightly biased, considering how J. Michael Tatum is the ADR director... but yes. It's still really awesome. And I'm totally cosplaying Juliet now.

Also, I'm pretty much done with college applications. Which is seriously awesome. It means that, today for example, I was able to come home and just watch several straight hours of anime on my computer. I highly approve of this.

...Mondays. Ew.

......This was going to be a real post... oh well. Screw it.

...Mondays. Ew.


Dec. 15th, 2009 10:31 pm
arthoniel: (House- Cause follows effect)
Fff. Fuck you too, college applications.

On the bright side, I got in my application to Brandeis University.

Also: grades. I got them back today.

Creative Writing: 88
Women's Studies: pass (it's a pass/fail course)
Participation in Government: 98
Criminal Law & Forensics: 95
Current Events: pass (also a pass/fail course)
Honors Precalculus: 97
Health: 91
Physical Education (Gym): 85
Diagnosing Disease: 90


Wow. I'm actually pretty impressed with myself. Save for Creative Writing and Gym (but that doesn't really count anyway), I'm a straight-A student. ("I'm a serious, straight-A student... a model teenager!" Fff, I'm totally Kira now. Fantastic. XD) That's kind of awesome. Just sayin'.

Mmkay, I'm done now. Just wanted to share before I dive back into the pile of misery that is college applications.
arthoniel: (Default)
[Error: unknown template qotd]
Oh geez, really? I mean, I don't MIND school, but... WEEKENDS AND FREE TIME PLZ.

Also, Facebook is kind of taking over my life = problem.



Also also also... being solidly single so I can flirt with and like whoever I want without feeling wierd about it = also very much not a problem.

Yeah. Life is good right about now. Even if I have a shitload of English homework I need to start now. That was kind of due about a week ago.  ^_^;;
arthoniel: (The Daily Show- TDS: We put the anal)
sldfkjsdj THE YANKEES GAME. It's totally insane... BUT WE'RE GONNA WIN IT!!


...Sorry. That was necissary though.  XD

Beyond that... I'm actually outlining my NaNoWriMo novel this year. I'm going to know where I'm going with it and everything- it's pretty intense.  XD

My cough needs to go away. Like, now. I've had it for literally weeks and... urg, I don't approve. Oh well... it could be worse. It could be the full-blown bronchitis I had a few weeks ago...

Which, incidentally, I'm presenting on tomorrow. In my Diagnosing Disease class, we all had to pick an infectious disease and present on it... and I'm doing bronchitis. Yays for irony!!  XD

I'm... finally learning the Hare Hare Yukai. Or rather, I'm trying to. I kind of fail at dance- at memorizing steps and what order they go in and everything. But I'm getting there- I don't fail nearly as badly at it as I could be. ...Even if it is only the short version... shut up!! I just suck at dance... but this is something I feel like I should know.

Lastly, because this deserves repeating...

arthoniel: (Star Trek- Writer should DIE)
...My English teacher is just... ugh. Doesn't really know how to teach. Not like Mr. Rodriguez of Music  and Spanish 2 infamy can't teach, but... he needs to make what he wants in an assignment clear before he tells us to hand it in. Today. When it's half hand-written and half typed, and none of it is dated, like he wants it to be. So I'm not up at 11 at night, trying desperately to finish typing and then print everything since he gave me a day's grace to finish typing it all up. Even though I also had a thing at my school tonight about college applications, so I didn't get home until 8:30, at which point my dad decided that he wanted to have dinner right then, so I couldn't start until 9...  DX

Also, does anyone know how to cheer someone up who has clinical depression and forgot to take her meds, like my freshman from last year (although I guess she's my sophomore now...) did today? Just in case it happens again...
arthoniel: (Heroes- I couldn't have done it without)
I'm a vain person. I've got to be honest with you all- I'm an incredibly vain person. I spend time working on how I look, when I care. (Weekday mornings do not count. I'm barely even human then- more zombie than human.) And it's because I like getting compliments, I like it when people look at me for just that nanosecond longer as I walk down the street, I like feeling pretty. And I do feel pretty most of the time- not to be narcissistic (vanity=/=narcissism) but I honestly believe that I am a really pretty girl. But when someone points that out, or tells me I look beautiful, I just... I love it. And honestly, who wouldn't?

So I went back to my old middle school today. (That last paragraph was relevant, I promise... just stick with it a little.) Me and a bunch of other people who went to that middle school who now all go to my high school... we went back to talk about our high school (go HSAS!) and tell the 8th graders why they should go there. And I was so very awkward in middle school. In a way, I'm glad none of the students there remember me- I barely want anyone to remember how I was then. But I was just... so awkward- practically mute, thinking I had real friends there when for the most part I didn't (Wesley, Tori... I love you guys!!), and with such terrible fashion sense... it was just so bad. Who I am now hates who I was then.

So to go back to Center School (my middle school), and have the teachers there look at me blankly, not recognize me and look away, then do a double take and go all "...Is that you?? You... you look so... you look good!!" Yeah, that's pretty sweet.
